Department Manager (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 16 April 2018
The workload does not match up with the salary. Upper management who are not in store are disconnected and unreachable when issues arise. Expected to work overtime to get your responsibilites done but will not pay overtime or give you the time back. Not a great place to work... although they will tell you it is.
Benifits are good
Area management is not good, Expectations are unrealistic, The job description does not accurately reflect the job, No overtime pay, Expected to work overtime

Your experience will depend with the staff you come to work with since they always hire a variety of people of different personalities. Management provides in-house promotions and some training. No dull day since you change roles every few hours which is good.

H&M was a great job that required a little too much commitment for part-time. Required minimum hours was a little much to handle with school and extracurriculars. A great place to work if it's the only thing on your plate.
Women's Team Lead (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 15 June 2017
The company has great training in place but they take advantage by using "training" as a way to get part time sales associates who want to move up to do management jobs for minimum wage. Store manager at Limeridge Mall location is rasict and makes sales associates keep a close eye on any groups of black people that come into the store way more than white people.
Full Time Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 12 June 2017
I was with the company for about 5 years its a good place for teenagers to build a resume and personality the company is overall good but the management sucks and isn't fair. They are not fair enough for Women who are pregnant.
day to day for a part timer is Running clothes taking care of the fitting room being on cash. rotating between Functions occasionally being on truck.
Learning the skills at H&M is amazing it will take you far. I jumped from one retailer to another and H&M is the ONLY company that i've seen work as efficiently in a fast past environment.
Meeting new friends and networking was my favourite part of working there. if it wasn't for my co-workers I would of not known how I would make it through the day.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Ontario – 7 June 2017
If you really want to work in retail this is a great place. They're training and management are great. Retail in general in pretty unpleasant pay but I would say H&M is better than most. I would say the hours are not great but they are normal for retail.
Sales (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 16 May 2017
the managers were difficult to deal with at times, and sometimes they don't have enough people working, so its difficult on the ones that are. HM has good culture though, and they try to give back to the community, which is commendable.
fun place to work at times but now they're cutting back
Sales Advisor (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 7 May 2017
had an okay experience at H&M, loved my co-workers but management was not the best. H&M is changing and is now cutting back hours even though they keep hiring more people. i liked the company before the changes happened and now they're just going downhill.
Part time sales advisor (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 29 April 2017
I loved working at H&M. Their core values as a company really shaped me into the worker I am today. They value hard work and dedication almost as much as offering fashion at the best price. I really loved the culture and the vibe of the store. I met a lot of great people. The only thing I would recommend is make sure you say no when you are at your limit. Sometimes the hours for part timers would get a little out of hand and the store can be incredibly busy. It's okay to say no to that extra shift if you're burnt out. Don't push yourself for the sake of the paycheque. The customers will benefit from you being well rested and happy to be there!
amazing coworkers, team spirit, flexible hours, great environment
not always enough coverage during peak hours, unpaid lunch, can be stressful
Honestly, this is not a bad job. I was welcomed into the team and felt comfortable with management and my other co-workers. However, I found that the hours were all over the place and the pay was not fantastic.
